Storyline

Stephen Strange is a brilliant but arrogant surgeon, always willing to watch his bottom line to make more money. But when an accident gravely injures his hands, his career never quite recovers. Too proud to take on a teaching position, Strange is determined to find a cure that will restore his career and his life. But his downward spiral continues after burning through his funds, reduced to homelessness and performing shady medical procedures for little money. However, Strange gets word of a mysterious sorcerer known as the Ancient One, who may have the cure to Strange's ailment. Convinced, Strange travels to the Himalayas in order to meet him. However, life has different plans in store for Strange as he finds out that he's not going to return to his career as a surgeon. What the Ancient One has planned for him, is to train his protege in order to protect the world against evil, as a sorcerer. What Strange may have found, is not only his salvation, but his destiny as the new Sorcerer ... Written by mystic80

Trivia

According to Kevin Feige, the concept of magic in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is inspired by The Matrix (1999) and the fantasy works of Stanley Kubrick and Hayao Miyazaki: "Have you watched the Cosmos (1980) series? That's magic, the quantum physics. If somebody knew how to tap into that stuff, what's the difference between that and magic? You don't get into it in Harry Potter, but if a scientist went to Hogwarts he'd find out how some of that stuff is happening! We're not going to spend a lot of time on it, but there will be some of that, particularly for a character like Dr Strange, who goes from a man of science to a man of faith and who traverses both worlds. And sometimes there won't be an answer! Sometimes he'll want an answer - 'How is this happening?' - and nothing." See more »
